A Mother's Prayer...

Lord of all pots and pans and things,
since I've not time to be
A saint by doing lovely things
or watching late with Thee
Or dreaming in the dawn light
or storming Heaven's gates -
Make me a saint by getting out the meals
and washing up the plates.
Although I must have Martha's hands,
I have a Mary mind -
And when I pick up boots and shoes,
Thy sandals, Lord, I find.
I think of how they trod the earth,
whenever I scrub the floor.
Accept this meditation, Lord,
I haven't time for more.
Warm all the kitchen with Thy love,
and light it with Thy peace.
Forgive me all my worrying
and make my grumbling cease.
Thou who loved to give men food,
in room or by the sea -
Accept this service that I do,
I do it unto Thee.
